When bride, Danielle, asked us to style her engagement shoot we couldn’t wait to hear all about her vision! Our hearts almost exploded when she shared with us her forestry, boho inspired ideas. The photos from Maria Olech are absolutely swoon worthy! Take a peek at some our favorites from the shoot.
We thought we’d share the essentials to a perfectly styled, boho inspired photo shoot! Below you’ll find everything you need to make your next shoot as dreamy and magical as this one.
1. THE LOOK: In your engagement photos, all eyes are on you! You’re going to want to look and feel your best—and that includes being comfortable! We loved Danielle’s choice for a simple and flowy dress in a natural color. It was the perfect selection to flatter her easy-going and light-hearted personality! In addition, a floral crown is a MUST for a boho inspired photo shoot. We loved Bloom & Vine’s design for Danielle—it was a statement piece but did not over shadow her beautiful bridal glow!
2. THE LOCATION: For a dreamy boho inspired photo shoot, the location possibilities are endless! The location could be on a beach, in a field of flowers, on the river, whatever fits your love story and personality best. Danielle & Jerry’s love really shined in this location as they were lost in each other’s eyes in the midst of the magical forest. These photos were taken at the Arboretum at UC Davis.
3. THE PROPS: The props were the most fun to pick for this styled shoot. We worked with Botanica Lifestyle + Design to pick the perfect pieces. We chose to go with a lounge/picnic setting in the forest. We started out with a textile, patterned rug. We then paired it with some lounge pillows and brass pieces on a small table for dimension. The final touch was hanging beautiful violet colored dream catchers above Danielle and Jerry.
We also really love the idea of using candle lit lanterns, lounge furniture, streamers or ribbons, and a tree swing. We’re full of creative, fun ideas and would love to help style your engagement shoot, wedding or event!
